WiebeTech offers RTX Dual-Bay RAID

updated 03:45 pm EDT, Tue March 11, 2008


WiebeTech has announced the RTX200H-QR, a new RAID hard drive solution featuring RAID 0/1 for two drives in TrayFree bays. The TrayFree technology doesn't force the user to install hard drives into trays -- you can imply slide in a SATA drive and shut the door. The RTX200H-QR is compatible with four different interfaces: eSATA, FireWire 800, FireWire 400 (via included converter cable) and USB2. The new new metal bays also have two LEDs for power and access. Bays are lockable for added security. Hardware RAID 1 offers best possible protection of data by mirroring the drives in real time. Hot-swappable bays allow the user to remove and replace failed drives without shutting down the system. The new unit is priced at $500.

    kind of odd

    how they harken back to the days of "piles of floppies" and say how now it's common to have piles of HD's laying around. I'll admit, I'm NOT one of those people who has HDs laying around, so I can't point out any validity/invalidity there, but piles of FLOPPIES? Why not stacks of CDs? ZipDisks? A ZipDisk might be the best comparison, since they were/are rewritable and can hold an appreciable amount of info, but their text begs the question, why compare yourself to an antiquated storage media? I've been around long enough to use the 4" and 5.25" floppies, but that was ages ago.

    Guess we can see what age group was writing this/they're attempting to appeal to.

    piles of drives

    this is largely aimed at media/video/audio folks who eat up tons of space and do indeed have piles of drives (and are old enough to remember 3 1/2" and 5 1/4" floppies.) I sell this product and know the Wiebetech crew, it's solid stuff, even if their marketing is a little silly.
